    I have always been amazed at the ingenuity of some of the gadgets used in the spy movies and apparently, I am not the only one. Danny Biederman (one of the writers) has been immersed in the spy world, at least as Hollywood depicts it, from the time of his youth in the 1960s, when he was introduced to a world of "spies, gadgets, adventure, and beautiful women-everything that a ten-year-old boy could possibly want." Since then he has collected over 4,000 props from various sets, amassing such an impressive trove that in 2000 the CIA asked him to exhibit it at its headquarters. This book tells the story of each TV series and movie through Biederman’s props, which range from the coat hook used in U.N.C.L.E. to open a secret passageway, to the gold sofa that adorned James West’s private railroad car in The Wild Wild West. Amazingly interesting book.
